Spices are always considered as extremely important ingredients to create the flavor of family meals. Have you ever felt frustrated because you forgot that the onions, garlic, leaves, … in the cupboard have been exhausted ever since. And having to go to the market in the middle of cooking is really too troublesome. So why don’t we grow those spices ourselves? Let’s explore how to grow some spice plants together!
1. How to grow green onions
Green onions are used a lot in Vietnamese family dishes. From bringing so many health benefits, green onions also have a very simple way of growing that you can do it easily.
Buy ready-made onions with fat, green, fresh and white stems about 5-7cm long. Then you put them in a plastic bottle or white glass and pour water about 2.5cm high. Place onions in a dry, well-lit, ventilated place.
However, you should avoid exposing it to too much light and change the water every two days.
2. How to grow garlic
Garlic is a spice used to increase the attractiveness of dishes and also bring a lot of benefits to the human body. The way to grow garlic is also quite simple.
First of all, use a glass or plastic bottle and go buy garlic bulbs that don’t rot. Then peel, wash and soak in water for about 12 hours. Rearrange the cut garlic and bottom of the bottle and place the top of the garlic bulb facing up. Pour water into the bottle.
However, you should not overfill it, but just pour it to the top of the garlic to make it easier for the garlic to germinate. Finally, place the garlic in a light, cool place. When the garlic has enough roots and is strong, you can make a styrofoam box or pot to grow plants. After a few months, the garlic leaves will turn yellow to brown, then you can harvest it.
Ginger is an indispensable spice in the kitchen of every family. Not only has the effect of deodorizing the smell of meat and bones, but ginger is also very good for the digestion of people who eat it.
First, you choose an old ginger root and put it in a dark, moist place for the ginger to sprout and sprout. Put the ginger in a pot containing moist soil and water it every day to help the ginger grow faster. Follow the above steps regularly and after only a few months, the ginger plant sprouts, leaves and produces fresh ginger roots.
